Chelsea are out of the Champions League after losing 2-0 to Real Madrid last night.
The Blues were thrown out of the European competition as Real Madrid put on a dominant display last night at Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea will miss out on Champions League football next season as they are now 17 points out of the top-four.
The club is actively looking for Lampard’s successor with both Julian Nagelsmann and Luis Enrique lined up to take the managerial role.
But veteran defender Thiago Silva has blamed Chelsea’s hierarchy on the club’s downfall this season.
‘I think the first step has been made. An incorrect step, but it has been made,’ Silva said.
‘We can’t be blaming the managers if we don’t take responsibility. It’s a hard period for the club, with a lot of indecision.
‘Change of ownership, new players arriving – we had to increase the size of the changing room because it didn’t fit the size of the squad.
‘Some can’t make the squad, we signed eight in January, we need to stop and put a strategy in place otherwise next season we could make the same mistakes.’
